IMC Technology Commercialization 

"Advancing Novel Technology" 

 

De‐risking market and operations is paramount for success of a new technology. Our Technology Commercialization practice area supports new technology from the concept stage to the market entry stage, through a combination of services. Over 25 years, we have gained substantial experience in conducting due diligence and developing business plans for leading edge technologies in various sectors. More recently, we have expanded our services to include sourcing funding (both dilutive and non‐dilutive), marketing support and technology assessment, reflecting our growing bench strength. Our “hands‐on” approach creates value for clients, prospective investors and customers.

 

Our Technology Commercialization support services are listed below.

 

Technology Assessment

IMC will conduct internal due diligence and assess the technical viability of new technologies from the perspective of practical, real world applications. Even before a “time to market” estimate is made, our knowledge and experience in the introduction of innovation can help prioritize which technologies should be pursued.

  

Marketing Support Services

Getting to know your market using a third party quickly reveals real world insights and opens doors for future sales conversations. Fully understanding the customer’s jobs, pains and potential gains and how your product or service can help, is critical. Whether conventional market research or a design sprint, IMC follows this with a highly targeted market development plan and, if needed, we use our extensive team of senior executives to open doors and provide front line sales support in one or more target markets.

 

Feasibility Assessment & Business Planning

Introducing a new technology requires more than a vision, it requires foresight and an actionable plan. IMC can conduct feasibility studies, which can then form the basis for the execution stage. IMC will also provide simulation-based scenarios to help proactively assess risk. Investors demand that key risks be identified with realistic mitigation strategies developed and implemented. IMC integrates the technical, market, human resource, and financial assessment requirements into a cohesive and actionable business plan.


Non‐Dilutive Financing

IMC has experience and a wealth of knowledge in identifying funding opportunities for a new technology. IMC can help companies identify and apply for funding programs to support activities such as commercialization, marketing, prototype development or testing.


Commercial Support

Our team members have years of experience in supporting new project development, including negotiations of various agreements regarding suppliers, customer off‐take, licensing and financing. Our experience allows us to structure agreements to manage risk. This is supported by our strong market and transactional knowledge.
